We have thoughts 鈥 lots of them 鈥 about the newest piece of the Star Wars saga. The Last Jedi, opening everywhere on December 15, made us laugh, gasp, shudder, shriek, and even get a wee bit teary. The film is an exciting addition to the franchise whether you鈥檙e either a Star Wars fan (you鈥檒l love it) or not (what?!). Here are 20 initial spoiler-free thoughts, reactions, and observations.

1. We need a Star Wars inspired vacation. Not to a place where X-Wings and TIE Fighters fill the sky, but rather one of the stunning real-world locations featured in the film. For the ambitious project, the cast and crew jetted off to Ireland, Iceland, Croatia, and Bolivia to film various scenes. Personally, we鈥檙e partial to the pretty little isle (the very real Skellig Michael in Ireland) that Luke calls home and would take it rain or shine.

2. We want Daisy Ridley鈥檚 personal trainer. She continues to be FIERCE especially with a lightsaber in her hand.

3. Two and a half hours goes by quick. This is the longest film in the saga, so make sure you are mentally and physically prepared for the journey and have plenty of food and water.

4. We鈥檙e super into Laura Dern鈥檚 hair in the movie. It is so on point and could easily be number 26 in our These 25 Purple Hairstyles Will Make You Want to Dye Your Hair piece. The hue, the cut, the styling = perfection.

5. Speaking of hair, Rey鈥檚 triple bun is back. And we鈥檙e not mad. It鈥檚 a look that totally works for her. Although it should be noted, later in the narrative she does sport another style, a far more simple 鈥淚鈥檝e been through a whole lot and can鈥檛 indulge in being high maintenance,鈥 type of 鈥榙o.

6. Just one more thing about hair; Billie Lourd鈥檚 character pulled a mini Princess Leia hairdo yet again. We first saw Carrie Fisher鈥檚 daughter don a pair of tiny side buns in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and she had the same look for The Last Jedi. Billie also paid tribute to her mom via her hair off-screen as well when she sported a braided bun that was very Princess Leia circa Empire Strikes Back at the film鈥檚 world premiere.

7. There wasn鈥檛 enough Chewy. But yet, there is never enough Chewy. Don鈥檛 worry, he will be getting more screen time with the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, the origin story of Han Solo and Chewbacca about their life before joining the Rebellion.

8. We want Rose Tico to be our BFF. Seriously, she is so rad. Not just her character, but the actress, Kelly Maire Tran, IRL. She鈥檚 hilarious and adorably nerdy, a perfect combo. It鈥檚 hard not to get contact giddiness from looking through her Instagram feed. And check out number 14 below on why else we love her.

9. Every time Rey used the force to move something, we expected her to start bleeding from her nose. Maybe we鈥檝e been watching too much Stranger Things.

10. The 鈥渟pace jewelry鈥 game is strong in this one. From Rose鈥檚 moon-shaped necklace to Princess Leia鈥檚 finger long rings, to Supreme Leader Snoke鈥檚 huge rock ring, there鈥檚 a whole lot of otherworldly bling, and this isn鈥檛 by accident. Director Rian Johnson revealed on Twitter that, 鈥渋n rehearsals, Carrie grabbed my arm and told me with great urgency that we needed 鈥榮pace jewelry.鈥 I thought that was a fabulous idea.鈥

11. We still want a BB-8. But we wouldn鈥檛 say no to a BB-9E, the robot鈥檚 evil twin that鈥檚 spotted assisting the bad guys. You can鈥檛 go wrong with a cute round robot.

12. No matter how hard you look, you won鈥檛 be able to see Prince William and Harry鈥檚 rumored cameo. The dashing duo reportedly wore full Stormtrooper gear and appeared in one of the scenes which may have filmed the day the two famously made a pit stop at the studio outside of London where it was shot. The photo above could be them, or they could be in the crowd of hundred (Tom Hardy supposedly is in Stormtrooper gear in the film too). It鈥檚 a royal mystery.

13. We also didn鈥檛 find Joseph Gordon Levitt, who reportedly had a cameo in the film as well. He鈥檚 a pal of the director and appeared in three of his other films. Levitt鈥檚 not on screen, but rather the voice of an alien. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a very brief little thing, but it鈥檚 fun, and if you watch the movie, maybe you鈥檒l be able to hear and pick out Joe鈥檚 voice in the movie,鈥 revealed director Rian Johnson.

14. We were worried that Porgs would be Jar Jar Binks 2.0., but they鈥檙e actually adorable. And we鈥檙e not alone in digging these sweet little creatures. 鈥淲hen I look at a Porg, do you know what I think it is? I think it is a manifestation of parts of Rian Johnson鈥檚 soul,鈥 Gwendoline Christie said. 鈥淎nd for that reason, I love the Porg. If I hear anyone saying that they鈥檙e not into the Porg, I get incredibly defensive. That鈥檚 just what I鈥檓 projecting. I feel like it鈥檚 an element of his soul, and they are beautiful creatures.鈥 She鈥檚 not the only fan; Kelly Marie Tran even made her very own Porg costume for Halloween.

15. The movie is non-stop excitement. There are no good 鈥減otty break鈥 moments, so use the bathroom before the movie starts. It is a jam-packed show, and you鈥檒l either miss a piece of pivotal action or a great joke.

16. Benicio Del Toro is making a name for himself as a sci-fi character actor. Between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and his role as The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy, it appears he鈥檚 embracing the fantasy genre. One thing鈥檚 for sure, he can certainly pull off a sexy scoundrel vibe.

17. There are life lessons. One of the reasons why Star Wars resonates so deeply with so many is that there鈥檚 always a message of hope, personal power, and strength. All that and more are in The Last Jedi.

18. Kylo Ren really needs some anger management classes. Dude has some issues.

19. Don鈥檛 spoil it for your pals. Several times during the movie we had the urge to call our fellow Star Wars fanatic pals and say 鈥淥MG, can you believe that __ is __ and that __?鈥 Yeah, don鈥檛 do it. Seriously, spoiling movies is not cool, and it鈥檒l get you immediately blocked on Twitter by Mark Hamill himself.

20. You will need time to 鈥減rocess.鈥 This isn鈥檛 a film that鈥檚 easy to digest; there are mysteries that are seemingly solved and an open-ended conclusion that is a vast as a galaxy. But we have time; we won鈥檛 find out what happens until the next one in about two years.
